Final Call for Innovation Awards Nominations

Last year’s innovation awards spanned the breadth and depth of analytical science, with mass spectrometry, microscopy, spectroscopy and chromatography all represented in the top five technologies (scroll down to see the full 2021 list). 

What will we find in this year’s Innovation Awards? Well, that’s up to you.

Our judging panel can only assess the technologies and solutions that have been nominated, so please make sure you get your nominations in by Friday, October 28. Simply fill in the quick form available here.

The only rules are that the technology or solution must have been commercially released (or planned for release) in 2022 – and it must be expected to have a significant impact on analytical science.

Good luck!

About the Author
James Strachan

Over the course of my Biomedical Sciences degree it dawned on me that my goal of becoming a scientist didn’t quite mesh with my lack of affinity for lab work. Thinking on my decision to pursue biology rather than English at age 15 – despite an aptitude for the latter – I realized that science writing was a way to combine what I loved with what I was good at.

From there I set out to gather as much freelancing experience as I could, spending 2 years developing scientific content for International Innovation, before completing an MSc in Science Communication. After gaining invaluable experience in supporting the communications efforts of CERN and IN-PART, I joined Texere – where I am focused on producing consistently engaging, cutting-edge and innovative content for our specialist audiences around the world.
